***CANCELLED! After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel our kids ride scheduled for this Saturday. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) has raised the EEE risk to high in the Topsfield / Ipswich area. We feel that having an outside event under this latest update is probably not prudent. Please keep an eye out for details on our October 20 Kids Mountain Biking Festival.***
Come join NSNEMBA and GBNEMBA for the September Kids Ride at Dow Brook Conservation Area, Ipswich on Saturday, September 21. This will be a BONUS Ice-cream ride. Kids Rides are a great way for kids and teens to build strong bodies, build confidence, have tons of fun and enjoy being outside! Meet at 10:15am, rides begin at 10:30am.
Meeting at the ball fields 67 Mile Lane Ipswich Ma 01938
67 Miles Lane Ipswich, MA 01938
The Kids Rides are designed for children ages 6-15. Based on the skill levels of the participants, we typically break into two groups: one for kids who have more experience with riding, and a second group for beginners. All we ask is no training wheels.
No registration is required. This is a free event (including ice-cream). If you have any questions about the Kids Rides please contact Andrea Jones.

These rides allow children to have fun while enjoying the outdoors and getting some fitness. In addition to learning some biking skills, we teach respect for the parks, trails, and other trail users. The ride will be well staffed and every safety precaution will be observed. Parents are welcome on the ride but not required. Riders must have a serviceable bike, properly fitted helmet, and water for the ride. All riders must wear closed-toed shoes - no flip flops or sandals. Snacks will be provided!
